The men's 3 metre springboard, also reported as fancy diving, was one of four diving events on the diving at the 1928 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was actually held from both 3 metre and 1 metre boards. Divers performed five compulsory dives from the 3 metre board – running plain header forward, standing backward header, running isander (half gainer), backward spring and forward dive, running header forward with half screw – and six dives of the competitor's choice (different from the compulsory), from either board, for a total of eleven dives. The competition was held from Monday August 6, 1928 to Wednesday August 8, 1928.
A point-for-place system was used (except, for reasons unexplained, in determining the silver and bronze medalists). For each dive, the divers were ranked according to their dive score and awarded points based on their rank for that dive (the best dive earned 1 point, the next-best 2 points, and so on).
Twenty-three divers from fifteen nations competed.
The three divers who scored the smallest number of points in each group of the first round advanced to the final.
